Abstract. We consider the ferromagnetic $q$-state Potts model,
with each of the $q$ spin values coupled to an external field.
We also introduce a generalized random cluster model, which includes both the Potts model in arbitrary homogeneous external fields and the
non-integer $q$ random cluster model as special cases.
We establish the FKG property, the finite energy condition,
uniqueness of the infinite cluster, and Gibbsianness of limit states for this generalized model.
Furthermore, we develop the theory of Gibbs states for the
Edwards-Sokal representation of the Potts model in a field, and relate the phase structure in this representation to those in the spin and random cluster representations. Finally, we characterize the possible color(s) of the infinite cluster(s) and show that the correspondence
between Edwards-Sokal Gibbs states and their random cluster marginals
is bijective, once the color of the infinite cluster is fixed.
